The ZombieLoad Pragmatist: Tips for Surviving in a Post-Meltdown World

ZombieLoad Survival Guide

Security-conscientious developers and infrastructure maintainers can protect against side-channel attacks by minimizing the amount of shared infrastructure. This means VMs and Container infrastructure. This was always a theoretical concern, but the new flaws catapult this front and center to the main stage.

Intel’s Memory Group on the Advantages of Scylla

intel

The Intel Memory Group is behind the revolutionary Optane SSD drive that provides breakthrough performance and is 5-8x faster at Low Queue Depths than traditional SSD’s. Intel began working with ScyllaDB staff last year to build a big memory system at high-volume scale. They chose Scylla because they needed a solution that can fully leverage the hardware to derive the best possible performance.

Intel Optane and Scylla: In-memory Performance at a Lower Cost

optane

Solving your performance problems with Intel Optane Organizations often face problems with their current database infrastructure regarding performance, data persistence, and cost. Some may use in-memory databases to help address performance concerns but they may run into data persistence issues. Sacrificing the integrity of your data is never a good tradeoff for performance. Also, more memory in a server will drive up costs. An ideal solution would provide the performance of an in-memory database without compromises on throughput, latency, and data persistence.

Intel Optane Review

In mid-2015, Intel and Micron jointly unveiled a new kind of non-volatile memory storage device named 3D XPoint (pronounced “cross-point”) that is 1000x faster than NAND. Now that 3D XPoint is generally available and has hit the broad market, we can start testing it. 3D XPoint uses electrical resistance and is considered to be bit addressable. It’s also worth mentioning that the endurance is much better with 3D XPoint because the stated wear leveling is 30 full drive writes per day for 5 years. 3D XPoint developers indicate that it is based on changes in resistance of the bulk material.
